Research Centre for Empirical Pragmatics (RCEP)

The Research Centre for Empirical Pragmatics (RCEP) is a project initiated by and associated with Bonn Applied English Linguistics (BAEL). Empirical Pragmatics studies language in use by analyzing actual language data. This data can be collected with questionnaires, interviews or experiments, but may also be sampled from large text collections such as corpora.
